Green Math, Part 5: Green policies and energy prices

The Guardian’s Leo Hickman ponders a deep question:

Are green policies good or bad news for energy bills?

Hickman wonders if there could possibly be a connection between green taxes and rising energy bills in the UK, a topic that is quickly becoming a political liability for the Prime Minister and his lunatic Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change.

There should be no surprise energy costs are higher. After all, that was the whole point of green policies:

Who knew that paying up to twenty times the market rate for wind and solar-power might lead to an increase in utility bills? If only someone could have foreseen the havoc that would be wrought by the green dream.

Oh, wait. Everyone did:

In fact, warmists got exactly what they wanted, green energy subsidized by taxes and fees levied against fossil-fueled generation.  What greens don’t want is any blame for the resulting hikes in energy bills.

Too bad. Own it, hippies. (Daily Bayonet)
